Types of Portable Satellite Systems
Flyaway Satellite Systems – Flyaway satellites are mobile satellite antennas that have been deconstructed and installed into one or more ruggedized cases for easy transporting. Flyaway satellite antennas come with everything you need to quickly deploy and get internet access from anywhere in the field. While they are portable, they are not necessarily lightweight- flyaway satellites can be over 100 pounds per case and can be made up of a few cases depending on the size of the antenna.
BGAN Terminals – BGAN terminals are about the size of a laptop and can be deployed in minutes for near-global satellite internet coverage. Internet speeds are generally not particularly fast, but do allow for simple web browsing and sending or receiving emails. Set up is very simple- just turn on the BGAN, point it in the direction of the satellite, and connect the BGAN to the device you are going to use.
Satellite Phones – For areas without reliable cell coverage, satellite phones are needed to keep in touch with the outside world. Using a network of 66 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites or a few geostationary satellites, the main satellite phone providers are able to provide global or near-global coverage.
